In this insightful and thought-provoking book, Robert Wurtz II traces the history of Christian evangelism from the book of Acts to modern times. The contrast between pre-1900 and post-1900 evangelism is so sharp, that the book is divided into two sections: Part 1, the pre-Billy Sunday era and Part 2, the post-Billy Sunday evangelistic era. This book is a must-read for anyone who has concerns about issues such as "the sinner's prayer" or shallow concepts of conversion. We are in danger of losing our Evangelical Christian identity altogether, and it is a direct result of failed modern evangelistic methods. Television has greatly contributed to this issue. Join us as we take a journey through history to discover the discarded theologies and methods of effective Christian ministers.
